These boots are made for walking.... by 

….and they did!! My son wore these boots at the age of three, so I thought it’s time to reminisce a little bit – I took a photo, and then I made a sketch on water colour paper using pencil, pen and ink. To enhance the image I combined water paint – and this is the end result. My son is almost 30 now. He’s planning on getting married next year! These fine leather boots sure bring back lots of wonderful memories.
My seun, wat nou ’n man van amper 30 jaar is, het hierdie skoene gedra toe hy drie jaar oud was.
